A Program for the Training of Elementary Art-Music Teachers.
Boynton, Edward A.
This study was occasioned by the arts being presented at the elementary level as a technical skill to be mastered rather than as fine arts to be understood and, later, mastered. This study formulated a preservice education program to produce an elementary specialist with concentrations in both art and music. This study reports one of the main benefits of such a program is that it serves the area of the arts in localities where it is now totally neglected. The success of the project is reported to depend on the careful selection of candidates and on school administrators (who were found to be interested in the program but might not be if they had to hire such a teacher). This study includes implementation plans for an allied arts program, review of literature, year-by-year curriculum recommendations, and a program summary. The appendixes include a copy of the survey form sent to state education departments and a selected bibliography. (JA)
